Morgrim has a ruddy complexion with perpetually flushed cheeks and the kind of bulbous red nose that in humans is associated with drunks and lushes. His hair is a coppery blonde mop worn in a score of thick heavy braids with a huge, curly, orangeish beard.
Deep beneath the Icerime Mountains are dwarven cities and kingdoms that surface dwellers have never even heard of. For generations the Ironbeard clan served as the royal master brewers and distillers for one of these hidden kingdoms. A hundred years ago Morgrim's father, Tolgrin, started experimenting with more esoteric concoctions- brews that caused magical effects or enhanced the imbiber's abilities at a cost. His uncle, the chief master brewer, disapproved and, after many heated arguments, stripped him of his position and banned him from brewing in the kingdom. Tolgrin took his family and relocated to the surface world, eventually setting in Brunderton. There he continued his work and instructed his son.
Morgrim was an excellent student and quickly learned to be a skilled brewer. He made his living producing dwarven ales and hard liquors but after having relocated to the surface as a young child he had an inexcapable wonderlust. In his down time he could often be found tinkering and exploring and when the call came to tame new lands he was quick to answer.
